Nuff said really, used our tent in the New Forest( hollands wood) just came back today!

Fantastic tent, last 2 days of downpour, no leaks etc and even catered for 6 adults and 5 kids (under 7!) during the evenings shenanigans, cannot believe hide and seek in a tent is possible!

Purchased it second hand from that site that shall remain nameless.

Total usage 3 trips to new forest

1 trip to Spa, Belgium (9 blokes!), plenty of airflow for gas!

2 trips to cornwall .

Go Coleman!

This is easily the best family tent we ever owned. Loads of room. Really sturdy. Sadly we sold ot when I converted our T4 into a camper - wish we hadn't.

Only downside is the weight. This monster tent is pretty heavy and you'll need a good strong pair of hands to lift the pole bag when full (all steel poles!).

A brilliant tent, very spacious good storage and plenty of doors and vents (able to open/close them) to let air in on a hot day! The zips on the doors are a little bit dodgy, we seem to have a bit of trouble with them .

doesn't take long to put up until you have to peg in the numerous guy ropes (thats the longest part) but will stand up to much heavier weather and stronger winds.

The three nice sized bedrooms are lovely as you have room to change and move about. The back storage keeps the front living area tidy.

Only shame is we cannot seem to find a much needed side extension to cook under when the weather is really bad (we end up getting a take away)

Overall this tent is perfect for a large family holiday as it is warm and can fit lots in like a push chair as well as large table and chairs.

Would recommend it!

What a fabulous tent! Bought last year from a tent show and has withstood all manner of rain and winds with only a very minor leak over a zip. The poles are so sturdy and now we have got the hang of pitching, it's up within about 30-40mins. Loads of space inside, meaning that wet weather with 3 children isn't a problem as they can spread out! I would like a carpet though, so using picnic rugs at present! Also we are searching for a compatible canopy to use over a side door. We usually use a side door rather than opening up the huge front (maybe because we've yet to camp in glorious sunshine!).

I bought this tent brand new on eBay for only £120.00! when we went to pick it up my wife looked at the size of the bag (and this was before seeing the pole-bag) and thought we'd made a terrible mistake. This extended to her parents when they saw it too. We took it to a local campsite to see it erected and initially they maintained their scepticism. However, when we had it up(30 mins), all were amazed at the space, the layout and the access.

We used it four times as a family in 2009, and on one occasion I slept TEN of my hiking buddies in it, with room to spare. It has withstood the British weather well, and handles wind and rain without any problem. If I have one (very slight) niggle, it's with the awning. It's supported by three poles and guy ropes, and they need beefing up a bit - in wind they need constant adjustment, and in strong wind, it needs to come down. As I say though, this is a very minor issue. The tent is fantastic and I would recommend it to any family. If you can get it anywhere nearly as cheap as me,better still!

Having just returned from another successful trip away again this tent stood up to every thing mother nature threw at us. Blistering temps with all the door combinations it was a bliss for keeping cool then moved on to high winds and downpours at a coastal site and the tent never flinched. The only down side is weight of roof supports when initially pitching this tent, where some weaker natured people might struggle. However this is not a issue to ourselves and I think it adds ballast to a tent. I have seen the light weight fibre glass poles take off like kites and always seem to be taking a hammering during high winds, this tent stands firm like it is asking what next ! would definitely recommend this tent to any potential buyers

This is a truly cracking tent with just a few negatives.

The first is the lack of a porch forcing you to step straight into the living area with muddy footwear. A second is one of wind resistance. Be careful pitching when high winds are forecast. Our front pole (the one situated at the canopy end) collapsed and snapped on one windy night in Anglesey. This was really scary and could not be temporarily repaired until the morning after which I had to tie a couple of guy ropes around the upright poles, internally through the zips across from one side to the other. On the bright side it made a handy internal washing line! On the negative side, the poles never recovered and always seemed to bend really easily, not just the poles in question but all the poles. There are simply not enough guying points at the canopy end and that slab side does resemble a sail.

Another niggle was how rainwater always used to pool on the room above the middle bedroom, sometimes equivalent to a two gallon bucket.

On a positive, I owned this tent for a few years and had some cracking holidays in it. It never leaked and at its current price availability of around £350, it is an absolute bargain, just point the back end to the wind where possible.

This tent replaced my Vango Orchy. I am confident that this tent will not EVER be blown down. Large, airy, and a variety of window/door combinations. Just got the 2 pods in here, we sleep 2 adults and 3 kids, This tent does weigh 43kg, but it is solid, reliable and really really good quality. I've been camping for 30+ years, and believed that they don't make them like they used to until I got this. Bring on the storms.

So we have now had two great weekends away with this fantastic tent. Me and my better half can have this tent up in about half an hour, fully guyed. It has some great features, pockets everywhere, mesh doors and the storage area at the back is a great idea. It rained on our first weekend and not a drop was seen on the inside of the tent(unlike our last tent). I am very happy with this tent and would recommend it to anyone.

We have just been away camping with some friends who had one of these beasts and in plain terms; it was AWESOME!

Really decent quality fittings and ENORMOUS living and storage space. This has been designed by a complete genius! There are so many options for windows, doors, mesh, canopy it is suitable for sun, rain (lots of rain) and even bug swarms!I was most impressed and completely struck by a bad case of tent envy!
